This incense holder is a must-have. It holds the incense stick perfectly upright to allow for continuous and steady burning as well as added safety.
These handmade stoneware ceramic pieces have been inspired by Valeria's studies and continuous interest in archaeology and art history.
Her familiarity with artefacts and her knowledge of visual arts and traditions across the globe have shaped Valeria's taste and sense of aesthetics. One of the most relevant and strongest marks left by such knowledge is the sense of wonder at the universal relatability of handmade objects and human kind.
Valeria’s choice of technique to exclusively hand build her pieces through “pinching”, instead of using the potter's wheel, is not only a stylistic choice, but a conscious effort to imbue them with a relatable humanity and a sensory warmth.
Textures and shapes give the pieces their unique character and their (im)perfections remind us that there is a person behind their making.
This piece is approx 6cm high
